Overview

Art: Another Language for Learning presents true stories about childhood development, with accompanying discussions about the role of the art processes as well as products. It helps teachers and parents understand what they see when they look at children's art-and how to respond so that they may extend communication and advance learning.

Authors Cohen and Gainer provide an ideal resource for anyone without previous art training now working with children. Moreover, they encourage teachers, students, and parents to embrace the myriad ways art can unlock doors, encourage expression, and enhance learning.
